carpal tunnel

March 5, 2011 at 6:05 am

Hi, I have just been dx withe severe carpal tunnel in r/h and moderate in l/h.
Im waking up every hour or so with extreme numbness in r/h, my fingers feel like sausages but I dont have any pain in my hands just funny sensations. The pain I do have is in my elbows at night. I have great difficulty lifting my arms especially the left one.
After reading some earlier threads I’m wondering if it is worth having the operations.
Does anyone else experience this elbow pain and is it associated with carpal tunnel?
Overall I’m deteriorating rapidly and my walking stick is beckoning me.
